MCC’s Accessibility Services assists students in overcoming barriers so that they can focus on their education.
Students with disabilities often face significant challenges. Thus, reasonable accommodations offer opportunities to succeed in classes similar to the opportunities that students free from disabilities can take for granted. A reasonable academic accommodation ensures equal access and equal opportunity to participate in MCC’s courses, services, activities and facilities. MCC is not obligated to provide an accommodation that requires a substantial change in the curriculum or alteration of any essential elements or functions of a program.
MCC adheres to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment (ADAAA) of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability and require Montcalm Community College to make reasonable accommodations for those otherwise qualified individuals with a disability who request accommodations.
